I am a Career Development Fellow in Economics at Mansfield College and a Stipendiary Lecturer in Economics at Trinity College. I previously taught economics at St Edmund Hall, St Catherine’s College, Jesus College and Merton College.
I obtained both my Ph.D. and my M.Phil. in Economics from the University of Oxford, and I was a visiting research fellow at both Harvard University and at the European University Institute.
My research interests lie at the intersection of political economy, microeconometrics, development and public economics. I study the econometric impact of voting rights’ policies across different aspects of American politics, minority rights, inclusion and enfranchisement. My current research also investigates the impact of the media on social unrest in the United States.
I have an interest in the interaction between research and policy making, and I am passionate about the ability that economics has in informing specific solutions and recommendations in many areas of public policy. In this respect, I have worked and conducted research for many international organizations, including the World Bank Group, Goldman Sachs, the Bank of England and the Economic Commission of the United Nations.
